Fox’s Chris Wallace: Prior National Emergencies Were ‘Real,’ Unlike Trump’s Declaration
Following Friday’s announcement of a national emergency by President Trump to secure additional funding for a border wall, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace compared this situation to previous national emergencies and suggested Trump’s declaration didn’t constitute a “real” national emergency.
“There’s 30 or 31 emergencies that are currently — they have been enacted by earlier presidents that are still active. But they are on very different matters. They’re on real national emergencies, things like freezing the funding, the assets in this country of terrorists,” Wallace said on Shepard Smith Reporting Friday afternoon.
